Better Late Than Never: Accepting the Best Moment and Sunshine Award

Sunshine Award

I can’t believe I’m so late in doing this. My blogger friend, The Novice Gardener, nominated me for three awards last month. I was planning on turning each into a separate post, but, alas, time has escaped me. And, until I can bend the time-space continuum…

I’m accepting these awards in synchrony! My acceptance speech is very applicable for these awards as well.Best Moment Award

The more I peruse the WordPress reader, the more I continue to find new and amazing bloggers. Of course, I tend to stick to my interests when searching, so my scope isn’t all that wide, but the following bloggers are the ones I wish to pass the torch to. For both the Sunshine and Best Moment Awards, I’m happy to nominate the following:

The Days of Jay

No Thyme to Waste

Jacqui O Retro

For Dragonflies and Me

Kitchen Joy

So that’s it. Thank you again, Novice Gardener, for recognizing Delicious Daydreams. And thank you to the amazing blogging community that continues to dream up, write about, photograph, and share their passions with the blogosphere. The internet is a better place because of people like you.

With love,



Graciously Accepting the Illuminating Blogger Award

Illuminating Blogger AwardI was given a much needed warm fuzzy on a cold and rainy Saturday morning. My new blogger friend, Ashley Marie from No Thyme To Waste, nominated me, Delicious Daydreams, for the Illuminating Blogger Award! Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. This particular award is exceptional because it means the recipients contribute informative and illuminating content to the blogosphere. I’m honored to be one of them!

So, as per the rules of engagement for acceptance, I need to share one random fact about myself. Perhaps I shouldn’t think out loud here, but I’m…oh, OK, gosh this is more difficult than I though it’d be. OK, got it. I hate candy corns (except for the ones that taste like Starburst; those are confusingly good).

Now, for my favorite part, I get to spread the love. In no particular order, I’d like to nominate the following bloggers who make my WordPress feed a happier place to dwell:

Soil and Cellar

Diary of a Tomato

The Thoughtful Plate

Recession Gardening

The Hungry Gap

Thank you, fellow bloggers, for keeping it interesting and honest. I really appreciate each and every one of you and am excited to learn more about you through your future posts. And, as for for my award angel, Ashley Marie from No Thyme to Waste, I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful food and photography. You, my dear, are the illuminating one! Thank you, again.
